I am an old man ...

Dear Harikumar,
It's strange that you don't have any friends from Russia, because a lot of people here are keen on India. Many of them even move to Goa to escape from their daily routine (you might want to read about it in our feature article: https://www.rbth.com/articles/2010/03/24/240310_downsh.html).
Today the easiest way to communicate with Russians who know English is to find them on Facebook. This social network is only starting to gain popularity in Russia, so today the Russian users of this network are mostly those who have or want to have friends abroad and know at least one foreign language. Many of them are members of our club on FB:

You may join it and start communicating with Russians initially. Our staff is also open to a dialogue. You can have a look at our team in the "About us" section of this website and write to him/her via our main e-mail: info@rbth.ru, stating the name of the exact person in the "subject" of the letter.
Sincerely yours,
Russia Beyond the Headlines team
